CommandFusion's iViewer, our professional automation remote control product, now comes in a "lite" version designed for DIY automation users and smaller automation projects.
Melbourne, Australia - May 29th, 2013
Available today, the iOS app iViewer Lite offers a cost effective way for DIY users and installers of smaller automation systems to create their own custom graphical user interfaces (GUIs) on an iOS device. These GUIs can be used to control any system that is controllable via Ethernet. Utilising CommandFusion's free 'guiDesigner' Windows program, users can create a GUI that looks and behaves the way they desire. Some possible uses for iViewer Lite include controlling a home entertainment system, a heating/cooling system or anything else the user can imagine.
"The time is right for us to provide a cost effective solution that makes iViewer more accessible to not only DIY users, but also for installers of less complicated systems. We think it offers the best value for money in its segment. " said Jarrod Bell, Co-Founder, CommandFusion.
